This week’s programme starts with the overture from Mozart’s Magic Flute, then we have the three Gymnopédies by Erik Satie. After that a short excerpt from Stimmung by Stockhausen – a piece for voices – it’s followed some 12th Century monastic monophonic chanting by way of compare and contrast… Some Bach partita and Ravel’s Pavane after that and then Debussy’s sonata for flute, viola and harp to finish.
Another interesting mix I think. I hope you can pick up the broadcast.
